Today, we used a study room downtown and frankly, it was very dirty and not fun to use for that reason. I think it would be important to add cleaning staff during the weekend especially since the library is opened 24hours. I can understand not having the place cleaned at night during the week but going from friday night to monday morning without proper care…..not
sure it’s the best way to go to keep the place in good shape.
Thanks for your comment. We investigated and found out that there was unfortunately a missed cleaning shift on the weekend due to illness. This may in part account for the state of the study room you used. Hopefully the next time you will have a better experience, but do alert us if this happens again.
I wonder if the “very dirty” relates to food or drink containers left in the room by some of your fellow students? If so, your post offers a good opportunity to remind or alert everyone that though we allow drinks in spill proof mugs, we have a ‘no food’ policy in the library (see “Keep the Environment Clean” in our Library Code of Conduct). There are many reasons for this policy; the right to a comfortable work environment for all users is just one of them. Thanks again for keeping us informed.
